Blooming With Inspiration



For the next two weeks the Penny Black DT are showcasing Spring theme cards on the blog.  Here is first take using stamps from the Happy Everything release.



SUPPLIES Stamps (All Penny Black) Belle Fleurs (30-217); Twirls (40-282); Kind Words (30-226) Inks Green Hills; Lemon Yellow; Soft Olive (HA): Derwent Inktense Pencils Other Versamark (Tsukineko); Queens Gold EP (Ranger) Patterned Paper (Amercan Crafts)


I wanted to have my card and have a lot of layers.  On a white strip of CS fitting the width of a A2 card, I stamped several times the leafy image from the Twirls cling set (40-282).  The image stamped in a lime green are 2nd. generation images.  From the Belle Fleurs (30-217) clear set, I stamped the butterfly image twice on CS,  coloring them with watercolor pencils.  The butterflies were fussy cut and set aside.  On  a thinner set of vellum paper, I heat embossed a sentiment from Kind Words (30-226) using gold EP.

I then assembled the card using patterned paper and orange cardstock to bring out the colors of the butterflies.  The vellum paper was wrapped around my CS panel and I added the butterflies on the panel as well as the card.

Tune in next week on the blog for more inspiration.

Have a great weekend!
